    I installed a cover and today it looks very dull and dirty. I cleaned it a few times when I washed the truck Do you guys buy into a tonic or cleaner for it? I see there is different tonics for it for 20 something bucks, do you guys buy into this? I never had one on any of my trucks and I want to keep it looking new,cover is made by Extrang.

    I have the hard folding Tacoma cover. It looks very gray now. So the Mothers Back to Black is good stuff huh? Going to try that.

    Yes sir, cheap and effective. But once you wash your truck, reapply.

    What about that other product? Blak? Once a year sounds better.

    No experience with it myself. Seems too good to be true. But I've never used it so I can't fairly say.

    Yeah i've used ArmourAll for the back trim on my TRD, works great but leaves it a little to greasy IMO. You gotta really work it in for the tonneau cover because of the speckled texture. Gotta try Mothers...

    I love Aerospace 303 on the interior plastics, the seats, and the TRDOR wheel well trim, have not tried it on my factory tonneau cover but plan to next time I wash the truck.

    303 Aerospace is my go to. Leaves a dark matte finish, comes in a spray bottle. I use it every 3rd wash or so on my soft roll up vinyl cover.

    Extang makes their own product called Tonneau Tonic. $15 on Amazon.
    It seems to work pretty well but I dont think it’s a cleaner. More of a protectant.

    My OEM cover is like a grey/green color now, except the rubber. I used 303 on it since day 1. Pretty disappointed with the fading.
